PLEASE NOTE: Following changes to the Queens Park Arts Centre’s programme in light of COVID-19, we will not be opening on Saturdays during Autumn-Winter 2020.

    In place of our Saturday Makers Club, Pippa North will be running an Afterschool Pottery Club on Thursday afternoons from 4.30pm.

    As part of the Afterschool Club we will be holding several glazing sessions for students to decorate work which was bisque fired prior to the Centre temporarily closing in March 2020 (including school holiday workshops)

    You can find out about the Afterschool Club (and our other weekly workshops for children) by clicking here .

    Work which was paid for before lockdown has been fired in our kilns over the summer. You can book a glaze session to finish it, or collect the pieces to decorate at home with acrylic paints (please note – acrylics are not waterproof and are unsuitable for work being kept outside).

    Please contact info@qpc.org before collecting your work, as we will need to keep a record of anyone entering the building, and are required to limit the number of people in each studio at any given time.

    Regrettably, owing to the length of our temporary closure, we have been unable to keep any ‘in-progress’ un-fired work, nor completed items for which bisque firing had not been paid.
